Good Ice Cream too.

We were fortunate to have their excellent pastries for breakfast at our hotel, The Biltmore but after dinner we stopped by fr a scoop of ice cream. The raspberry was wonderful.

Gave it a second chance and it was a bad idea! What are people thinking? You can get a better cheesecake anywhere else.

Let me recommend something. Get a brownie and ask them to heat it up for you. ITS LIKE A CLOUD. IT MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH. As for the cheesecake, it's creamy goodness. There are a lot of flavors to choose. I got key lime pie and red velvet and both were delicious.

Love the variety and selection of cakes and cheesecakes. The staff is always friendly. A great place to grab a cup of coffee with a friend.

It's been a few months since our last visit to Alex's. It's still the best. No better cheesecake around. So many different flavors to choose from. Every one we have ever had is amazing.

Before your stomach turns at the combination of cheesecake and ice cream, realize that I am referring to two of their selections. The cheesecakes are fantastic. Alex's has the usual flavors and then the unique. Pumpkin cheesecake did not appeal to me until I tried Alex's --- I am a convert. The ice cream is from Homeland Creamery, a local... More

A Greek run bakery with wonderful treats. A little small but worth it every time. Always busy good eats and a nice place to talk and enjoy downtown Greensboro.

It's almost too simple; if you haven't been go! If you have been, go back again. There's limited seating and parking but don't let that hold you back. There are many flavors to choose from. Some are even covered in ganache. I see by David S.'s review that not everyone has had as good an experience as my wife and... More

An icon of downtown Greensboro, this little gem on Elm St has lots of parking an great cakes, pastries, bagels and coffee. They've got all the old school equipment, and their best kept secret is their coffee cake. As for it when they're fresh out of the oven!

High quality sweets. Not just cheesecakes but other desserts and coffee, too. Reasonable prices and comfortable seating in the heart of downtown Greensboro.
